  • When you arrive and park in the Artist Unloading Zone, please proceed directly to your colour zone and locate your spot. Volunteers will assist you locating your number. If you have questions, or cannot find your spot, ask one of our check-in volunteers in a yellow shirt, or go to the info tent.

  • Vehicles left within the closed area reserved for artist unloading may be ticketed and /or towed.

  • We do not recommend parking in the neighbourhood: There are many closures and no parking areas, and we want customers that buy art to be able to pick up larger pieces if they choose. We also need to maintain access for emergency vehicles to the site and neighbourhood.
